Workshop Poster Revealed

We are delighted to reveal the poster for the forthcoming graduate workshop on The Problem of Religious Art in Modernity. Uses and Abuses of the Icon in Russia!

Despite the restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are still hoping to meet most of our speakers and participants in person. We are trying our best to make this possible with the help of our colleagues of the “Eurasia in Global Dialogue” Program at the Institute for Human Sciences (IWM).

So, the date of the workshop remains
October 15 and 16, 2020.

As you already know, we are also planning to arrange a remote access to the workshop’s presentations.

We will keep you updated!

The restrictions due to COVID-19 also affected the forthcoming graduate workshop of the Russian Art & Culture Group…

Unfortunately, the collaboration with the Internationales Kolleg Morphomata at Cologne University was no longer an option, since the university cancelled all on-site events until October.

We did our best to find an alternative venue, since networking with real people is one of the main goals of our workshop series and everyone is attending so many online events nowadays.

Therefore, we are delighted to announce that the forthcoming workshop with the topic The Problem of Religious Art in Modernity. Uses and Abuses of the Icon in Russia will be held in Vienna. We are already very thankful to our colleagues of the “Eurasia in Global Dialogue” Program at the Institute for Human Sciences (IWM) who were open to our collaboration and hosting our – now joined – event.

The new date of the workshop is
October 15 and 16, 2020.

Luckily, Professor George Pattison from Glasgow is still able to be our keynote speaker. Furthermore, we are looking forward to the presentations by Alexei Lidov, Oleg Tarasov, and Maria Taroutina, among others.

In advance hindsight, we are also planning to arrange a remote access to the workshop’s presentations.

We will keep you updated!
